Gone Again!

They came - they met Helayna - they cuddled both nieces - they visited - they celebrated - they brought lots of joy - and now they are both back in Poland. Mel and Tyler, that is. We got a phone call at 5:30 this morning from Mel, saying that everything had gone fine and she was back in Katowice. The storm didn't delay her flight, her connections went fine, customs clearance went okay and Tyler met her with the driver they use at the university. I'm sure she's trying to adjust to the 8 hour time change now. It's going to be a very long time until they are both here again, I'm afraid. We all enjoyed their visit immensely. And I was going to show you a picture or two but alas, blogger is not cooperating - again. What else is new?!!

I had a snow day from school yesterday. Our gravel roads to the highway were drifted and my little puddle hopper of a car wasn't going anywhere so I didn't get to school. It was a good day for baking Blomidon Inn Brown Bread, making vegetable ham soup and reading a book - oh, and shovelling snow! Busses didn't run in our area so lots of kids were missing from school too. The schools are still open for urban students.

It was -32 degrees Celsius at school today - C.O.L.D.!!! The forecast is for warmer temperature but more wind tomorrow which equals the same numbers when the windchill is calculated. This weather just makes me want to cocoon in front of the fire. I hope you are staying warm in your little corner of the world.


  1. Miss you lots already. I'm slowly adjusting, had a nap in the afternoon, but woke up often during the night. I am praying that we will be able to get together this summer and that it won't be quite so long until we're with you again. I love you!!!

  2. Big hugs Crystal! I can imagine how difficult it is being so far away and knowing its going to be a long time before they see you again! Lots of love to all of you

  3. Isn't it freezing out?! I hope you are inside keeping warm today!
    I miss Mel and Ty too! I hope Mel can visit this summer!

  4. Glad to hear they made it back safely. Having family so far away is not fun!

  5. Glad they made it back home safely. Stay warm Crystal.
